Granite City Alaska FAQ
What is the difference between granite and quartz?
Granite is natural stone that is mined from quarries all around the world. The slabs of granite all look a little different. Quartz is man-made. It varies much less than granite, so usually what you see is what you get. It is 93% stone and 7% resin. Granite surfaces need to be sealed usually every 6 months with a simple spray.
What is the benefit to stone surfaces rather than solid surface?
The benefit to both granite and quartz is that they are stain and scratch resistant. Solid surface will scratch and can crack much easier than a stone surface.
Where else in my home can I put granite or quartz other than my kitchen and bathroom countertops?
